DESCRIPTION

DARK ROSE HEARTS
dark tea/pu-erh (sample)

Pressed into heart-shaped cakes, this tea follows the century-old tradition of creating bricks of tea for use as currency or for efficient travel by ship or camel. This tea’s sensual, easy-to-enjoy flavor releases notes of smooth wood and a delicate, velvety whisper of rose. Veiled in mystery, dark tea is a special category of aged tea from China that is seldom seen in the West and revered for its medicinal effects.

BREWING TIPS: Use one heart in a mug (6-12 oz) and briefly steep for 1-2 minutes, or use one in a larger pot (12-20 oz) and steep 2-4 minutes. This tea can be re-steeped multiple times, presenting a different character with each infusion. Each sample contains 2 hearts and brews between 2-4 cups depending on desired strength.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

  1. Fantastic rose flavor on a tasty ripe pu-erh heart.

    Posted by C B on 5th Mar 2020

    I didn't intentionally wait to try this on Valentine's Day but it seems a goodaday as any. The cutest tiny heart shaped ripe pu-erh that unravels into small pieces of pu-erh and plenty of tiny rose petal pieces as well. The rose flavor is certainly there in the cup. The pu-erh is definitely dark yet none of the negative pu-erh qualities at all. The third steep I really let loose for a very long time (15 minutes), and surprisingly for a pu-erh it did have a touch of bitterness. User error. But this might be the longest I've ever let a pu-erh steep. Dark enough, smooth enough, and rose enough. There is nothing to dislike in this unique offering.
    Steep #1 // 1 piece for full mug // 18 minutes after boiling // rinse // 2 1/2 minute steep
    Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 3 1/2 min steep
    Steep #3 // just boiled // 15 min steep


  2. The best tea you'll ever drink

    Posted by Knight of Tea on 11th Sep 2019

    This tea is absolutely amazing, combining my two favorite flavors, pu-erh and rose!

    The taste is soft and contemplative, taking you on a journey into the ancient!

    I highly recomend you all to try this tea.


  3. New Favorite

    Posted by Steve on 15th Aug 2014

    This is my new favorite tea. The whole "cake" idea was a little intimidating. However, it just dissolves in the strainer so... doesn't really change my process. I love the flavor- it's really awesome.
